January 17th, 2014. Traditional Home Designs, Wonderful Tree House Community in Costa Rican Jungle.
Perhaps among any other populous places, a jungle region in Costa Rica is the most unique for being home to a village of tree houses. This project of tree house community by Finca Bellavista, started as an idea by Mateo Hogan and Erica Hogan. The concept of the project sparked after earlier observation on the landscape detail of the forest, and drawing influences of a certain fictional civilization from famous movie series Star Wars.
Being a set of tree houses, the construction composition is definitely rustic. Additional supportive construction frames made of entirely woods are built to shape some details of big trees that fit the criteria to be mold into tree houses. The rustic house construction ensures sustainable characteristic for the building, which makes it fit as an eco-friendly residence.
Apart from wooden composition, other materials are also used for the building construction. A good example to this complementary composition is zinc for the roof of the house. Zinc is chosen due to its adequately durable structure against rain and wind, while still providing lightweight and easy to install frame for the roof vault. After all, using more bulky material for the roof bears the risk of making the whole construction unstable. Additionally, being tree houses, the leaves and branches over the actual house structure should be able to reduce the harm of rain even before it reaches the zinc roof.
As to heed its established theme of being a rustic piece of architectural design, the interior arrangement of these tree houses features furnishing items of rustic construction. Examples to these items are wooden chairs, wooden table, and other decorative items made of branches. Apart from their exceptional rustic aesthetical feature, these items are also chosen for their sustainable structure and light weight. All are ideal criteria of furniture for a rustic sustainable house. The house community has indeed made a remarkable achievement in the department of eco-friendly construction.
